Bobby Knight will endorse Donald Trump at an Indiana rally on Wednesday, because if there’s one thing Trump’s events have really been lacking, it’s the potential for chair-throwing. Over the weekend, Trump praised the intense former Indiana University basketball coach, calling him “tough, smart, strong.” 

Knight’s appearance shouldn’t come as a surprise: Last fall, the former coach called Trump to praise him while a reporter from The New York Times Magazine just happened to be in the room. Said Knight on that call: “No one has accomplished more than Mr. Trump has.”

The event is set to take place a little more than a week after Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan introduced Trump at a rally in New York, saying, “There’s so many things I admire about Mr. Trump, but one thing I really admire about him is, you know what, he’ll say what’s on his mind.”
